Every single time you download a program and try to run it, that stupid pop-up comes up and adds a whole extra click. The pop-up looks like this:
You can remove this in any Microsoft OS that is XP or later with the same steps. How do I remove this you ask? Like so:
1. Click Start, Run (or Windows+R) and type gpedit.msc
2. Navigate to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Attachment Manager
then double click “Inclusion list for low file types” on the right pane
3. Select Enabled and enter in the file extensions you want to allow, including the preceding period and separated with a semicolon
Hit OK, exit out of your Group Policy window, and run your newly downloaded spyware infested program, free of the annoying “security” pop-up!
